At the 55th AAFF, we sat down with filmmaker Ann Oren to discuss her film Deux Femmes (for Man Ray), an erotic tribute to a posthumously released pornographic film by artist and photographer Man Ray.

Oren’s Deux Femmes captures intimate scenes captured on photos and presents a scene, a movement, one photo at a time making a movie in a movie of sorts.

As well as explaining her background and the inception of the idea for her film, Oren also praised the Festival: “I think it’s an amazing Festival...I really wanted to participate in it for so many years [but] I don’t think I ever did a film that was quite right for the style of the [Festival] before...I love the premise of the Festival, showing work of experimental filmmakers...It’s a very particular community...and it’s amazing to be here and meet people.”
